If you needed more proof that Google is taking Google+ seriously, Mashable has some big news — Blogger and Picasa will be renamed to match the Google+ brand. Blogger will become “Google Blogs” and Picasa will become “Google Photos”.
To be clear, nothing bad will happen with Blogger or Picasa, as they’re just being renamed. The transition will take place over the next six weeks or so. A fun sidenote in the post is that the public launch of Google+ will happen on or before July 31, so less than four weeks away.
This makes perfect sense to me, especially with Picasa. Most people know what Blogger is, but I’m guessing most of your typical users have no idea what “Picasa” even means. “Google Photos”? That makes perfect sense.
Other brands are likely to be rebranded as well, though Google has said that YouTube will remain as is.
